Often, dueling technologies don’t play well together.
And when this happens, efforts become redundant and clumsy as each operator has to retool his way to mesh with hers.
It becomes a battle of wills which serves no-one well . . . until one of the combatants acquiesces.
2 different digital signature platforms can make spaghetti out of any otherwise clean and neat transaction.
Better yet . . . try one side with digital signatures and the other with paper and scan/fax.
“electronic apps man” whirls documents through ether-space effortlessly and miraculously parks executed documents in the “Transaction folder” with the expectation that the other player inherently knows the document is there.
Deadlines pass . . .
Files hit the Office audit . . . and fail miserably.
Of course, none of this would be a problem if EVERYONE were to use the same APP, right?
But that’s not reality . . .
so . . . use your app to your heart’s content but don’t expect me to retool my whole way of doing business for your convenience.
(This post is on the heels of a mad scramble 2 days before closing caused by 2 agents using different apps . . . one out of 11 documents was executed properly)
